The filter bubble!

I already knew about this idea but I came across this very good TedTalk where Eli Pariser is just amazingly clear about the filter bubble how he called it. As teachers it is our responsibility to stress critical thinking in our students and this is a brilliant way to say it. Related to this idea of not wanting to live in this bubble and reading an article by Doug Belshaw I came across the idea of using a search engine that does not track your search, DuckDuckGo. The idea: the results are not curated by the main “gatekeepers”.  I decided, as Doug did, to give it a try and see if I can consciously step out of the filter bubble which, awkwardly enough, I did not decide to be in!
